Running CHKDSK on external drive? Where is the log?
I ran CHKDSK on my 1TB external drive and went to look for a WINLOGON
log file for that program but there wasn't one for the day I ran the
Although it took forever, it appeared everything was running in
CHKDSK. I was surprised to see it run from Windows and not the blue

Why don't I get a log for this test of the external drive?

Normally you access the USB port via the device driver for the specific
device which is attached to that port (unless, of course, you are writing
the device driver for a new device). I'm not sure that it's meaningful to
attempt to" access a usb port as a serial or parallel port" without
knowledge of the device you are trying to communicate with.

I'm on a computer that was origionally intended for public use but is now
used in an office and as a result of being intended for public use, it's set
so that nothing connects to the USB ports. If I plug in a drive, it lights
up, so there is power to the USB ports, but it doesn't show in My Computer.
So how do I enable the USB ports? What icon do I go to in Control Panel?
Or, in case that icon isn't there, in what subfolder of Z:\User would I find
the file that opens the needed panel?
Enter the BIOS and re-enable them.

Hi There, I'm a novice, and I thank you for reading my message.
I've been creating Sync Lists of Songs, with the songs mixed in a
particular order I desire. I then name the playlist. I sync the lists
into my USB Stick 1GB without shuffling, but upon playback the order of the
songs in the playlist have been altered. In fact, they are played back in
the order of the artist. Is it possible to sync the playlist exactly as I
mixed it, and have the USB Stick playback the exact mix of song order
accordingly? Or is this an impossiblity? Thank you for your help and...Excel 2003

I'm in China where their electrical supply is 220V. I am using my laptop to

where he only has access to a desktop which is using the 220V electrical
supply. Does the desktop USB connection supply the same amount of power as
my laptop USB connection or will I toast his IPod when using the USB
connection on the desktop? In other words, do all USB connections supply the
same amount of output power, regardless of the input voltage?

I want an external hard drive at least 1TB in capacity. I have been

reviewers rate some of them very good but individual users rate them
from excellent to poor (on the same drive). Some say thet're quiet and
some say they're noisy. Most users say their drive broke down either
out of the box or within one to three months. I want something
reliable and would like your opinions as well as reviews I can get on

We are developing a system with CE 6.0 R2 that has a user accessible USB
port. We want the user to be able to plug in flash drives so we can upload
and download files. However if the user plugs in a device that is not
supported via the built in drivers we get an Unidentified USB Device message
box asking the user to enter the name of the driver. Is there a way to
